Once it has been determined the inverse optimization is converging, the second phase of evaluation is to visually check the simulated cooling curve vs.
The highest content of bainite was found in the specimens with the cooling curve 40W which has the fastest cooling rate as shown in (Fig.
In recent year, some of the scholars present various effective approaches that attempt to control the cooling rate and cooling curve.
They are arranged in sections on heat transfer, modeling and simulation, distortion and residual stresses, property predictions, quenchants and quenching, gas quenching, hardenability, cooling curve analysis methodologies, and dilatometric analysis, modeling quenching and tempering induced phase transformations in steels, predicting quench-hardness within the whole volume of axially symmetric workpieces of any shape, the gas-cooling of multiple short inline disks in flow along their axis, and the dilatometric analysis of aging in aluminum alloys.
The heating and cooling curve give the relation between floor system water temperature and outside temperature.
A cooling curve, shown in Figure 1, depicting this behavior can be obtained by plotting, on semi logarithmic axes, the fractional unaccomplished temperature difference versus time.
Again, by connecting the dots (according to best fit) and continuing to draw a straight line to where it intersects the x-axis, we have the approximate cooling curve for the Sure Temp.
One representative cooling curve from a bismuth-containing alloy and an integration of that curve were used to determine the liquidus and solidus temperatures, Table 1 shows the experimentally determined liquidus and solidus temperatures measured for bismuth-containing alloys and the database values for the leaded and lead/bismuth-free alloy compositions.
